Subject: Shot At Headquarters Apparently
That was a carton of Twin Pines milk, which was a Detroit outfit with classic milk trucks for home delivery. (call TExas 4 eleven hundred for worry-free home delivery) That was not however, a typical Detroit area home of that era (no basement). That has got to be the earliest melamine kitchen I ever saw. In those days the Nelsons still had knotty pine.

Shows a dolorously long and agonizing demonstration of what I would call a useless floor cleaner. Lots of do-dads but not much of a time saver. If she didn't spend half of the movie on her hands and knees washing one and a half square feet of floor, then feigning a sweaty brow, the whole point of this device could not be appreciated. The real work horse hung to the left of the demonstrated appliance in that closet..the floor scrubber, and Bissel made a better one which we got for just a mere 350 books of S&H Green Stamps. That puppy was heavy but indispensible for that semiannual ritual of stripping the old Johnsons Paste Wax off of the asphalt tile in the basement before applying a new coat; so requisite before the next family get together.

The film lacks a sound track and is one that seems to play faster then it loads...but a darling depiction of late 1950's living when a clean kitchen (and basement) floor was paramount. So I give it four stars due to its retro content and true to form composition - right down to the Dior original.

Silent film (or rather a film without a soundtrack) pushing Hoover's new floor polisher. The film is ok, very colorful, but I'm Pretty Sure that the polisher is just spreading large pools of water around.
